The building was recently constructed with modern materials and has a contemporary style. During the daytime, light passes through the large windows creating a bright ambiance. On the terrace you can relax and spend time with your family or friends. The private indoor garage (16mq / 172.22 sq ft) can be locked with keys and it can hold a medium to large car. The garage can be also used as storage for your suitcases.

Steps located outside the apartment bring you to the garage. Automatic gates on street level grant access to the garage.

Our Opinion:
Palestrina Terrace is the ideal apartment for medium or long-term rentals and is the best solution for a couple or a single who wants to live in Florence, outside the city center but within a few minutes from main connecting roads. The private garage can be locked and you can easily park your car.

The apartment is located just outside the main historical centre of Florence in the area called Porta al Prato. This area of Florence is a 20-30 minute walk or a 5 minute tram or bus ride to main cultural attractions such as the Uffizi Gallery, the Duomo, the Bargello Museum, Piazza della Signoria, and Palazzo Vecchio. The Porta al Prato area is primarily residential so there is a variety of grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, bars, and cafes. In the area you will also find the Porta al Prato railway station (hourly train connections to Empoli), the “Stazione Leopolda,” Florence’s former railway station which has been converted into a vibrant exhibition hall used for events such as craft fairs, television shows, fashion shows, as well as cultural and business meetings. The Parco delle Cascine, Florence’s largest public park, popular with walkers, joggers, horse riders, and families is just 5 minutes away by foot.

The Florence city center is a ZTL zone which means a limited traffic zone and therefore special rules apply to entering this area. This particular apartment is not located within the ZTL which is an advantage, meaning that driving to the apartment and parking nearby is fairly easy. Nearby the apartment you will find adequate street parking, which you will pay for between approximately 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. When seeking on-street parking please note that you must only park in blue lined spots as the white lined spots are for resident permit use only. Parking costs vary within the city with the highest charges being found towards the centre of Florence. If you prefer, you can park in a private garage or choose one of the several car parks (usually underground).

  • 5.0/5 This apartment is amazing and incredibly glossy. Great space with all the amenities needed and in a ridiculously good location. I couldn't recommend highly enough staying here. The agency are really attentive - let us enter the apartment earlier, welcomed us like if we were part of the royal family and were lovely people. This apartment is an amazing base for a few days in Florence and it's furnished in a stunning way! Thanks for everything guys!
